Blueyonder is the ISP part of a Cable TV company over here in the UK.

Looks like the are playing with various 'annoying' (IMHO) anti-spam technologies. Personnally I've looked at this technique at a request of one of users who thought it might be a better idea than the Spamassassin system, we use. For this very reason where the 'from' is kept by mailing list systems I was dubious it would work. Looks like (for once) I was right to be dubious.

Not sure, but I got 4 of them, and it took 12 hours from my only post over
the weekend to get them. Since I cannot get mail to @@blueyonder since I will not play this little game I hope he sees this and realizes it is a really BAD idea to run such a service for the lists is is subscribed to.
